The sofa is mid 19th century American Empire possibly Tennessee made scroll arm and back with carved acanthus. Most of these are made of mahogany but if it is Tennessee made it was probably cherry.
Inherited from my father who lived his entire life in Tennessee. The sofa was re-covered professionally, the fabric is a classic William Morris lily leaf print.
